The Budget for 2019-20 FY has been prepared to supplement the BJP-IPFT government's dream to make Tripura a self reliant in true sense, said Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb.

While speaking to the media on the Budget at the Civil Secretariat here yesterday, the Chief Minister said presenting to two deficit-free Budget is the glaring example that the new government has been working to make the state self sufficiency.

"Making economy a robust is the pre-condition of attaining self reliant for a state and increase in the revenue collection also plays key role. The revenue collection has been increased from 10 percent to 25 percent during the past 11 months. This is a very good success on the party of the government", he said.

Deb said the state government has already implemented 7th CPC for the employees and pensioners. "But we could not give full benefits to the employees. We will remain in place for four more years. The Centre has given Rs. 1800 crore as additional fund. Other benefits will be extended to the employees once state’s revenue colligation goes up", he promised.

The Chief Minister also rejected the malicious campaign on the social pension scheme. "In the budget speech, Dy Chief Minister Jishnu Dev Varma announced to increase social pension from Rs. 700 to Rs. 1000 per month. For this Rs. 250 crore has been provisioned in the Budget", he pointed out.  

As the promise given in the vision document, altogether 14,500 smart phones would be given to the students who have completed graduation. Rs. 5 crore has been earmarked in the Budget for providing 14500 smart phones.

The Chief Minister also highlighted the announcement of making ten tribal dominated RD Blocks as model by way of infusing more fund through DMs. The blocks include- Tulasikhar, Mugiakami, Rupaicherri, Silcherri, Raishyabari, Damcherra, Karbook, Dumburnagar, Dasda and Chawmanu.
